LIBRARY CARDS

As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, you can now apply for an NWPL eCard!

Your new eCard will give you full access to our online, digital resources like ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, newspaper, learning tutorials and more.

If you already have a regular library card, you do not need an eCard. Click Borrowing & Holds to learn how to order materials.

Click Getting an eCard to register for a new card.

GETTING AN ECARD

Complete and submit the Registration Form below.

A valid email address or telephone number is required to receive your eCard number and PIN.

We will review your request, generate an account number, and return the details to you via the email address you provide.

If you wish to borrow physical materials you will need to contact the library to have borrowing privileges added to your eCard. Call the library at 604-527-4660 or email askus@nwpl.ca.

Once you have your eCard, refer to Borrowing & Holds for information on how to borrow materials.

Note that anyone in the Lower Mainland can get a New Westminster Public Library card but you must be a resident of New Westminster if you wish to use our online resources.
